The 1st Rasharkin Company of the Boys` Brigade held their Family and Friends Evening on Monday 6th March in the Presbyterian Church Hall.
All who were gathered enjoyed a varied and challenging programme consisting of Prayer and praise singing, an item on the Ten Commandments, figure marching, two sketches, one by the Anchors, in my wellies, and the other by the Juniors, football crazy.
Much excitement was caused by the Anchor games, a chair relay and a shark game by the Juniors.
In the Finale all were reminded that as all looked up to the Company Colours when they were paraded, we need to look up to the better things in life.
The Commandments remind us of the rules for life, and the football crazy item of how we can allow things to carry us away and allow other things to take over our lives.
The shark game illustrated how we can be pulled under by satan and how we need to cry out for help and to be saved through our Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
